Adobe, today, released an update for its line of Lightroom apps, bringing native support for Apple’s M1-powered computers and Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Windows Arm devices, as well as support for Apple’s new ProRAW image format and more.
In addition to native support for M1-powered Apple computers and Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Windows 10 Arm devices, Lightroom version 4.1 also adds support for Apple’s ProRAW format, making it possible to import and edit images captured using Apple’s new image format. For iPadOS and iOS devices, Lightroom also adds the option for adding a Widget to your mobile device’s homescreen. Adobe has also addressed a few bug fixes and added support for new cameras and lenses.
During its virtual keynote event, Apple noted native M1 versions of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom Classic will be seen at the beginning of next year, but no specific timeframe has been given for those releases. Adobe has also announced that the free Lightroom Starter plan is available for Lightroom desktop (macOS and Windows) for users in Australia and NEw Zealand. This new free tier allows users to test Lightroom’s core features without subscription or trial limits.
The latest version of Adobe Lightroom should be available to download on iOS, iPadOS, macOS and Windows devices through the iOS App Store, Adobe Lightroom on the Mac App Store or through the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop app on macOS and Windows computers.
